"James Nachtwey is no longer affiliated with VII and is currently managing his professional affairs through his own studio," VII Photo's managing director Stephen Mayes tells BJP.
Nachtwey was one of the original seven founding members of the VII Photo Agency, which was created ten years ago. Previously, he was a member of Black Star from 1980 to 1985. A year later, he joined Magnum Photos, where he stayed until 2001 and the launch of VII Photo.
A World Press Photo winner, Nachtwey is also the recipient of five Overseas Press Club's Robert Capa Gold Medal (1983, 1984, 1986, 1994 and 1998).
“I disassociated from the agency as a photographer,” Nachtwey tells PDN, an American photography magazine.
